Hot Hues: Molten Metallics
Metallics well and truly arrived this season, with designer heavyweights Lanvin, Oscar de la Renta and Diane Von Furstenberg all sending high shine molten metallics down the runway. Previously favoured for winter in heavy brocade and stiff fabrics, SS14 promises a softer approach with liquid satin, lightweight pleats and shimmering shades, while the AW14 shows saw the trend continue well into the rest of the year.
Wearing looks from the Pre-Fall collections, these celebs are forecasting this year’s must-try trend in a way that works now.
Showcasing the effortless high-low appeal of metallics and denim, Gemma Arterton paired her iridescent Gucci Resort 2014 trench with cuffed boyfriend jeans and understated accessories for an insouciant after-dark statement. Hot off the catwalk from the Diane Von Furstenberg AW14 collection, Sarah Jessica Parker’s favourite wrap dress is updated in heady golden lace with a fluid, bronze skirt. Matching the look with a signature smoky eye, this was one runway look she wasn’t willing to wait for. And rounding off the trio with a suitably soft take on the trend, Mollie King’s wide leg Gucci trousers and sheer knit top were perfectly poised for a laid-back evening ensemble.
